Re: [IPk] Cartridges for pumps



Hi Jackie
The Minimed pumps have special Minimed reservoirs which you fill / refill
from a normal insulin vial or syringe. A full reservoir holds 300 units if I
remember correctly, ie 3ml. You're supposed to use a new reservoir each time
you fill it, but in practice you can reuse the same one several times.

The newer Disetronic pumps have a special pre-filled cartridge which you
just slot into the pump.
I might be wrong, but I don't think it's the same cartridge as you use in a
pen, I think it's a special one.
The old Disetronic models have a similar reservoir to the Minimed, which you
refill from a vial or cartridge.

We're going to put some more info about reservoirs on the website soon, when
we get round to it....
